A group of Libyan anti-government demonstrators gathered outside the Libyan embassy in Athens on Tuesday again called on the Greek government to recognise the national transitional council in the strife-plagued North African country, a day after protesters briefly took over the building in the Athens' diplomatic row.
On Tuesday, the solid green flag that symbolised the Gaddafi regime in Libya for more than four decades was waving from on the embassy's flagpole. Protesters on Monday had removed the flag and hoisted the tri-colour flag of the Libyan resistance.
According to reports, the Libyan ambassador to Greece, Ramadan Barg, along with a handful of diplomatic employees remained in the closed embassy, whereas the consul general was locked in the opposite consulate.
Both embassy and consular affairs were essentially suspended at the mission on Tuesday, with doors locked at all entry points.
